The use of conventional analysis equipment in hazardous areas is complicated due to a lack of approvals.

For example, for testing the purity of hydrogen at hydrogen refuelling stations.
Using a Smart Safety Test by safety specialist HIMA, specialty chemicals manufacturer Evonik in Marl, Germany, was able to increase the availability of a propene distillation unit. With the help of partial stroke tests on safety-relevant butterfly valves, the cycles between plant shutdowns can be extended from one to three years. The successful project is being acclaimed as groundbreaking because of its economic significance.
